LG K4 unveiled before MWC

A brand new smartphone in the run up to MWC 2016

While all eyes are trained on Barcelona’s Mobile World Congress for the announcement of new and exciting technology, LG has quietly unveiled a brand new smartphone.

The K4 is the third smartphone to feature in LG’s K-series, after the K7 and K10 were revealed at CES 2016.

Key specs

LG’s newest smartphone features a 4.5-inch display, 5MP camera, 2MP front-facing camera, 1GB quad-core processor and weighs just 120g. It will also run Android Marshmallow straight out the box.

A rounded silver rim runs around the phone, making for a very comfortable experience, while the sizeable screen is great for watching movies and gaming.

LG’s signature gesture shot is on-board too, which makes taking selfies easier than ever. Simply hold the K4 at arm’s length, get everyone in the frame, and then hold up your palm and close it into a fist. This will activate a 3-second countdown timer so you’ve got time to strike your best pose.

If that’s not enough, there’s also a front-facing LCD flash built into the 4.5-inch display. So even if you’re in a poorly lit room, your photos won’t suffer.

Is there more to come from LG?

Yes. Fear not, reader – LG isn’t finished yet. Last week we found out that the South Korean company will be unveiling a new flagship device at MWC this weekend and it will be the LG G5.

We don’t know a great deal about the new G5 just yet, but we do know it’ll feature an always-on display and there’ll be a touch enabled case. The official invite also seems to suggest that we’ll be meeting more than just a handset, with the line “come meet new friends on the playground”.

Stay tuned for the latest news on LG – Mobile World Congress kicks off on 21 February.
